Forest of Dean: strike two

Stagecoach bus drivers in the Dean are planning another strike. More than 20 drivers picketed the Berry Hill depot last Friday and they plan to strike again for 24 hours unless they have a pay dispute resolved.
Trevor Hall, regional officer for Unite, said “We’ve been offered a one per cent pay rise, but with the retail price index running at five per cent, that just isn’t good enough... We are calling for three per cent but so far management have refused to budge.”
